batteries needed

.. for my phone and Pebble, because they’ve had one hell of a workout today.

Earlier this morning, everyone’s favourite Canadian Nathan Fillion tweeted that he was taking applications for Valentines. I happened to be looking at TweetDeck at the perfect moment, so I responded to him and then moved on with my day, because that is what happens in meatspace: you do something, and then you do another thing, and then another thing, and so on and so forth until you’re dead/for eternity (depending on your belief tree).

Then this happened:

i'm in!

i’m in!

My notifications/Pebble have been going off NONSTOP since that tweet. In fact, since I took the screenshot, it’s gone off a half dozen more times. This is all very weird and hilarious, and now I have two Valentines for today so I am pretty pleased (if in desperate need of a Pebble charging cable).

Tonight Ed and I are going to see the LEGO MOVIE in DBOX and I am EXCITED. I will buy jellybeans and popcorn and my seat will move and everything will be great. Hooray for Friday!

happy friday the 14th from all of us sitting at my desk!

Following in the excellent footsteps of Sweden and along with other countries such as Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Canada has a curated Twitter account of our very own: @PeopleofCanada.

And for the week of February 4th to 10th, the voice of that Twitter account will be me.

MUAHAHAHAHAH *ahem* I mean, I am excited to bring my own personal Canada to the world at large. Please follow the @PeopleofCanada account (and me, if you’re not already) and see what kind of trouble I can get myself into in the name of patriotism over the next seven days!

Check out the project’s website, and consider applying to be a curator – it can be anyone in or from Canada, and is a completely awesome idea (that we borrowed from Sweden).

This may be the first time I’ve ever been nervous about Twitter.

Also, if you do happen to follow my personal account, sorry about that tweet from Saturday night. Inappropriate dinner theatre was *really* inappropriate (even if it made me laugh a lot).

So, yeah. I’ll see you all next week as the (unofficial) Voice of Canada on Twitter!
